Adolescents’ Gadget Addiction and Family Functioning

The aim of the study is to examine whether gadget addiction influences adolescent’s family
functioning and its dimensions. Data were collected from 226 adolescents aged 12-18 years old.
We used Smartphone Addiction Scale Short Version (SAS-SV) developed by Kwon et al.
(2013) to measure gadget addiction and Family Assessment Device (FAD) developed by Epstein
et al. (1983) to measure family functioning.

Physical environment has been an interest of public health research in the past decade.Numerous studies had been published regarding environmental attributes and their associationwith children’s behaviour(Krizek, Birnbaum,Levinson)Theurban area is defined as the region surrounding a citywhich isdeveloped, meaningthere is a density of human structures such as houses, commercial buildings, roads, bridges,etc. Rural area is a geographic areathat is located outside towns and citiesTypical rural areashave a low population density and small settlements.Environmental association with behaviour and the use of gadgetin adults is not applicable to childrenSjolieThueIn contrast, hildren and adolescence represent uniqueparts of the life course that are particularly important in the development of lifelong behaviorpatterns. Children nowadays start using gadgets in a very early age. They are exposed to digital devices since infancy. Video games may have just as much of a psychological effect as physical effect. A US based study indicated a strong relationship between adolescents who played a high number of video games, their aggressive behaviour with teachers and peers, and their poor performance in school. Exposure to violent games may have led to growth in negative behaviorFerguson, This study correlates the relationship of rural and urban environment, children’s behavioural tendency and the use of gadget in children. Most children in urban and rural areas start using gadget in the first years of life but not all children develop the same behavioural tendency in the use of gadget. METHODThis was cross sectional study. We used questionnaire to collect the data. Children aged 712 years were recruited from primary schools fromurban and rural areas using stratified randm sampling. Subjects comprised boys and girls, from urban and rural areas in Malanf, East Java, Indonesia.Questionnaire tools was divided into three parts: positive and negative behavior, vironment(family, school), and gadget recall. Participants were asked to give their answer by choosing one of the most suitable answer provided. Each answers were converted into score and then being calculated.The correlation between variables were assessed using logistic regression test. Hosmer and Lemeshow Test were used to assess the goodness-of-fit of the data. Data was considered statistically significant if value RESULT AND DISCUSSION Based on the questionnaire result, we applied Hosmer and Lemeshow Test to assess the goodnessfit of the data. Then we assess R square Nagelkerke to calculate the predictivepowerTable 1 presents the socio demographic profileof thestudyparticipants with mean age ± 10.3 y.o. The mean (±SD) of age start using gadget was y.o.Overall, 3.4% subjects had started using gadget in less than 2 y.0, % subjects had started using gadget in 2 until 5 y.o, and % were more than 5 y.o. In addition, % of the subjects reported �2 hours/day of total gadgets usage duration, exceeding the international recommendation of 2 hours/day of screen time. 23 Table 1 Baseline Characteristics Of Participants Variables Groups n % Age in years 10 y.o 154 44 �10 y.o 201 56 School Location Urban 293 82 Rural 62 18 Sex Male 188 52 Female 167 48 Duration using gadget 1 hour 93 26,5 1 - 2 hours 214 60 �2 hours 48 13,5 Age start using gadget 2 y.o 12 3.4 2 - 5 y.o 106 29.9 �5 y.o 237 66.8 Environment and Behavioural Tendencies The data in Ta ble 2 shows that o f all children who have a positive envir onment, as many as 65.1% have a tendency of n egative behaviour . Of all the children with negative environments, only 34.9% experie nced negative tendency behaviour . T he correlation be tween e nvironmen t and b ehavio u r is statistically significant ( p = 0.008) .

From the results of this study concluded that the urban environment has a tendency bad influence on childrenthan in rural areas.Nowadays, naturerelated activities were less common in elementary school childrenMaster, Kaur, Narasimhan, Nadeem, Ali,Shaik2016); LoucaidesC.A., ChedzoyS.M. Bennett, N, Children who lives in rural area experienced more actvities than those who lives in n areas.Children who lives in positive environment have tendencies to behave negative behaviourLoucaideset al., DavidFerdon, &Hertz.The study pre that negative behaviour can occur when the children exposed gadget too early in their lives, especially when they watch movies rather than playing games. This may be due to negative impact of the content of movies that the children still cannot distinguish which is good and rightthey tend to watch alone without a parental assistance.CONCLUSION There was significant differences between urban and rural area in affecting children behaviourand the use of gadget. Urban areaand age onset using gadget ad more tendencies to cause children to have negative behaviourand misuse of gadgetWatching movies is more dangerous than playing games and other games. Residentalenvironment is very influential on the formation of child behaviorFurther studies were needed as there aremany other environmental attributes which could affect behaviourand the use of gadget, especially in children.ACKNOWLEDGEMENT This research received no specific grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial, or not--profit sectors.REFERENCES American Academy of Pediatrics.
